I recently ordered the Antec NeoPower 550 ATX12V 550W PSU. I heard the first editions had problems with ASUS Mobos but the problem was fixed. So, is this a good PSU? I believe the Antec brand name is very reliable.

The quality is decent. It would be good if it only had single 12+V rails at 50A or higher. But I would still recommend the Antec Earthwatts 500 agaisnt the neopower.
